By default, port binding is disabled on all Fibre Channel ports.

  1. Go to iSCSI & Fibre Channel > Fibre Channel > FC Ports.
  2. Select a Fibre Channel port.
  3. Click Action, and then select Edit Port Binding.

    The Fibre Channel Port Binding window opens.

  4. Add one or more initiator WWPNs to the LUN's authorized initiators list.
